A Maywood man accused of attacking two Chicago police officers had a history of similar attacks on police, according to an Oct. 7 Chicago Tribune report.

Parta Huff, 28, allegedly beat two Chicago cops last Wednesday, one of whom, a female officer who suffered serious injuries, told police that she didn’t use her gun on Huff because she was afraid there would be public backlash, according to multiple media reports.

According to court records dug up by the Tribune, Huff, who was ordered held without bail on Oct. 6, had been out on bail last Wednesday after going to court for an April attack on a Forest Park police officer. On Friday, he was charged with attempted murder of a police officer and several counts of aggravated battery.

The Forest Park officer “had stopped [Huff] for running a stop sign. Huff allegedly drove off, crashed into a car and tried to flee on foot. When the officer caught him, Huff pushed him to the ground, injuring the officer’s shoulder and right knee, said Forest Park Police Chief Tom Aftanas.”

Huff’s arrest record, the Tribune reported, show that he’s a member of the Gangster Disciples street gang, but “his attorney said he graduated from cosmetology school and worked full time as a janitor and overnight at a chocolate factory.”

Huff reportedly tested positive for PCP at the time of the beatings of the Chicago cops. Huff was reportedly tasered multiple times, but the tasers appeared to have no effect, police have said.
